Buckmasters Tip of the Week: Nikon Binocular Tip

While Nikon binoculars are some of the most user-friendly models on the planet, we want to offer a couple of quick tips to help you get the most enjoyment possible. If you haven’t already done it, make sure you set the diopter for your eyes. Most people have one eye that is a little stronger than the other and by carefully making this adjustment you’ll enjoy better viewing with no eyestrain.

    Here’s how to do it:

  1. First cover your right eye while looking through the binocular. You can do that by covering your right eye or the right end (objective lens) of the binocular.
  2. Pick out an object about 100 yards away and focus the binocular using the center focus wheel.
  3. Next, cover your left eye, making sure your right eye is clear, and adjust the right side using the diopter adjustment located below the eyecup. Make sure you are looking at the same object as before. Note the diopter setting.
  4. From now on just use the center focus wheel when focusing and you’ll enjoy crystal clear viewing.

I really enjoyed your binocular tips and your blog as well. Most people don’t realize what a difference adjusting the diopter can make when using any pair of binoculars. My wife has one eye that is weaker than the other and would always complain that she could not see clearly through her binoculars. Well… after many attempts to focus with focus wheel with no luck… we adjusted the diopter and found that to be the whole probelm.
